i went to the dictionary and it didn't have a definition for one of them and the definition for the other word didn't have anything to do with what we are studying... that is why i posted the topic

gee, we really need to update the dictionary,

one is formation of sperm, the other is formation of eggs. Or do you need more specific differences in formation?

Do you still need an explicit explanation? Dr.Stein is very generous this moment, she will answer your question with an answer but you should know she has a limited time, and it counts down from now on... 100... 99 ... 98... :D
